Founded in 1991 by owners Michael Clifton and Terry De La Cruz, Performance Roofing has grown to become the preeminent roofing and sheet metal contractor in Orange County. Since the company’s inception, both Michael and Terry have applied their extensive roofing experience in taking a hands-on approach to running the business. Every step of each job, from bid to completion, is managed by Michael or Terry. This philosophy has led to the company’s steady growth over the past twenty years.
Performance Roofing has developed a niche in the high-end custom home market – both new and re-roof. Their clientele includes a virtual “Who’s Who” of Orange County, ranging from professional athletes to celebrities to business leaders. They have developed a stable of the finest builders in Orange County, who consistently use them as a subcontractor. These builders understand that their reputation is on the line and that they can count on Performance Roofing to provide the service they need and the end product that their discriminating clients deserve.
Responding to customers’ requests for increased sheet metal work, Performance Roofing obtained its sheet metal license in 2001 to provide architectural sheet metal services in addition to its already reputable roof related sheet metal work. Accordingly, in 2006 Performance Roofing acquired the assets of Saddleback Sheet Metal and one of its owners, Scot Toomey. Scot brings over twenty-five years of sheet metal experience to Performance Roofing and runs the sheet metal fabrication and installation division.
In 2007 Performance Roofing moved to their current 12,000 square foot facility in Santa Ana. The move enabled the company to stock more material and manufacture most of their architectural sheet metal. By installing both roof and sheet metal, Performance Roofing achieves tighter control of the complete scope of the waterproofing system and serves as a one-stop shop that their builders like. As the company looks toward the future, Performance Roofing will continue to expand their range of work and build upon their quality craftsmanship to further bolster its reputation as the region’s number one roofing and sheet metal contractor.
At Performance Roofing, our commitment is to doing the job right. We have built our reputation on integrity, quality, and keeping promises. Not only does our company build outstanding roofs, more importantly, we build relationships. It is what our company was founded on; it is what we will continue to do. We look forward to being of service to you.
Performance Roofing prides itself on giving back. We understand that being good stewards entails more than merely meeting payroll and paying our vendors. In 2009, Performance Roofing partnered with Habitat for Humanity of Orange County to donate roofs for three houses in Yorba Linda. Additionally, we have donated to various church ventures, school projects, community parks, Little Leagues, Softball, YMCA Indian Guides and Princesses, and the Suburban Optimist Club of Orange County.
A company is only as good as it employees. At Performance Roofing, we understand this principle. The majority of our employees have been employed for more than fifteen years. Steady work, above-average pay, benefits, a great safety record, and a fair work environment create a desirable atmosphere that make people want to work for us. We promote from within – foremen and superintendents must prove that they have what it takes to acquire a leadership position.
Materials and Practices
Performance Roofing utilizes only the finest roofing materials and waterproofing techniques. We seek time-tested products that can be counted on year after year. Rarely does our company jump on the bandwagon of a new material; new is not always better – particularly when it comes to waterproofing. What’s more, perfect credit with our vendors has led them to seek business with us. Consequently, we carry no debt and own everything. This allows us to get the best terms, pricing, and priority deliveries.
